More than 120 club members descended on the eight new dedicated Staring Lake Park Pickleball courts for a gala and fun grand opening, featuring EP Mayor Nancy Tyra-Lukens and Mayoral candidates Brad Aho and Ron Case. A fun pickleball game was played featuring the Mayor and Park & Rec Director Jay Latthammer against Club members Jane Goke and Dennis Gallaher.
A special tribute to Jerry Maas was presented by his son Steve with Jerry’s wife Carol Maas and other family members present.
The event included lots of cake, cookies and lemonade, but best of all, lots of GREAT PICKLEBALL. A fun time was had by all!
